    Hey ya'll! I'm Carter Parton Rogers. My hope is for Hey Hear Me Now to be a community of support as we all go after our dreams together!

How to go after Your Dreams!

Hello dear friends. Carter Parton Rogers here. I was just sittin’ here reflectin’ about how far I’ve come since I decided I was gonna pursue my dream of bein’ a country music singin’ sensation at the Grand Ole Opry. To the outside world it might not look like that far. But to me. Well. When I first picked up my guitar almost a year ago I didn’t know which end was up and what note was what…a fret? a chord? a SONG? Nothin’. Here’s proof in my very first video blog where I state to the world that I’m gonna go after my dreams. You will see how much I (don’t) know.

I even put on my own variety show. Ya’ll! Now I was no where near perfect with my music at the time and I’m still not. But I knew a few things and I wanted to share them. So I did what I could with what I knew at the time.

And then here we are almost a year later and I have learned many many notes and chords, I can play a few songs, I found it within myself to get up and do my music in front of people many times, I know what frets are, I know what a hammer on is, I know a few bluegrass songs, I’ve had a  Facebook comment “Liked” by The Opry. And just a week or so ago I got to perform at the wonderful Kulak’s Woodshed and it was broadcast to the whole world wide web.

All this to say. If I can do it…ya’ll sure can!!! And to answer what I started this blog post with…How to go after Your Dreams! Well. Here’s my thoughts on that. Step 1) Listen for what that dream is 2) Go after it!

Then yer thinkin’ “Okay Carter, but how do I go after it?”. Well you just start with one little-tiny-seems-so-simple-thing and you do one of those things each day. For me it was learnin’ a new note, or a new chord, or decidin’ to stand on a stage and share my dream and the little tiny bit of music I knew so far. And really it’s about bein’ the one, even if it’s just you, that keeps on believin’. Hold tight and preciously those glimpses of dreams and hope that are carried so delicately on the wind like when you wish on a Dandelion. Careful with your wishes that you gently keep them afloat and keep them away from the stormy weather that is your doubts. Ya’ll gotta know I’m sayin’ all this to myself just as much. We all need some support and encouragement every once in a while, even if it comes from our ownselves. Did I just make up some new words?

Hope ya’ll’ll join my Dream Pursuin’ Dream Board Project. It’s fun and a great way to take that first step…state to the world what your dream is.

And like I say at all my shows…I wish you all your dreams!

Singin’ and Dreamin’ – Carter

Hey Dear Sweet Friends,

I’m so excited to share with ya’ll today the video footage of me doin’ my music at Kulak’s Woodshed in North Hollywood, California. I hope ya’ll enjoy watchin’.

Here’s the video and then below are the photos from the show that I put in last week’s recap. Today though you get to see John hop up and play along. I thank ya’ll ahead’a time for sharin’ this video and passin’ it along.

 

This is me outside waitin’ for the show to start! As always one big ball of nerves! But also real excited…

Aww my sweet new friend John Raymond Cartwright. Ya’ll just heard him in the video playin’ the bass when he hopped up to play along. It was a dream come true, I always wanted to play on stage with a super talent musician and he is! He’s amazin’ and somehow he was able to tell what I was playin’ which I think is just amazin’ in and of itself. He said if I show up before the show next time he’ll practice my song with me and play during my set. Idn’t that just the best!

 

And this is the lovely and super talented Pontea B. Oh she was so nice to me and she is just soooo talented. Ya’ll listen to her music on the Facebook by clickin’ here: www.Facebook.com/ponteab

Walk in LOVE when you “Walk A Mile in My Shoes”

Hey Ya’ll. Carter Parton Rogers here. I wanted to share this video with ya’ll. My sweet Daddy told me about this song “Walk A Mile in My Shoes” by the wonderful Joe South and said to pay real close attention to the lyrics. It’s such a beautiful message. It’s fills my heart with gratefulness to think of my Mama and Daddy ’cause that’s always been their message to us…be open, acceptin’, kind, lovin’ and do not judge others…ever.

Let’s all remember this message of this song everyday and do our best to “walk a mile” in someone else’s shoes instead’a thinkin’, judgin’ and talkin’…and while yer walkin’ that mile, walk in love.
